If you would like to protect the data that visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting
plans, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just a few mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the instant it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a protected and reliable website without having to spend extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host a site inside a semi-dedicated hosting
account from our company and you wish to secure the information of your website visitors, you will be able to use a shared IP address which has been configured for SSL certificates with only a couple of clicks. You can pick this option inside the SSL order wizard which you will find inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can even select the certificate to be installed for the specific domain
or subdomain automatically by our system. That way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to preserve the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the info in any way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that your site won't be accessible if you enter the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the web browser address bar.
